The Razor Hoverboard 2.0 is a revamped version of the original smooth roller with safer, more secure features. Max weight limit of 220 pounds. This ride-on is self-balanced, but it does take some practice and core strength to navigate and maneuver. It reaches 8 miles-per-hour and rides for 60 solid minutes.
The Razor E300 makes it as the second among the best adult electric scooters for 2017.
The E300 is a favorite on college campuses and big cities, where cars are optional. This gets you there quicker than walking. It runs for around 40-45 minutes on a full charge, at top speeds of 15 miles-per-hour. Oversized deck and a solid, but lightweight, frame for comfort and durability.
This hoverboard is a quickie ride for when you need to get somewhere fast, but in an 11-mile radius. Trips to the store for a bag of snacks. Or, a short adventure across town. Those sorts of things are what this hoverboard was made for. Weight limit of 220 pounds.
Another from Razor comes in at #4 of the top adults’ electric scooters for and into 2017 with the E200.
This is one of the best electric scooters, in my opinion, because you can opt for a comprehensive bundle with pads and a helmet too. This chain-driven scooter reaches 12 miles-per-hour, and operates for 40 minutes on 12-hour charges.
This one is top-of-the-line in self-balancing tech with improved gear stabilization and an enhanced, strong motor.Also managing a spot among the 2017 top electric scooters for adults is the HOVERZON S Hoverboard.
Another hoverboard for hands-free movers and shakers.
There are two modes of speed for both beginners and experienced riders.
Yet another from Razor comes in at 8th among the “best of” electric scooters for adults for 2017 with the E325.
The E325 is a sleek insta-classic with extra-wide, smooth-roll wheels, an extra-large deck, and a quiet, chain-driven motor. It reaches top speeds of 15 miles-per-hour due to a high-performance, super-slick interior enhancement. Charge time is 12 hours for 40 minutes of continuous ride time. Includes a twist-throttle.
This year’s final pick of the top ten adult electric scooters is the UberScoot 1000w.
The 1000W is a scooter you definitely want to wear your helmet with. This classic, quick ride-on features a max weight of 265 pounds, and runs for 10 miles on a 4-hour charge. Perfect for short, fast trips. Includes rear and front disc brakes, smooth-roll wheels, and a foldable design.
